Food (I had scallops my husband had grouper) was delicious, it's right on the beach with ample parking. Not a sunset view for dinner. Would be very nice for lunch as well.

My husband and I were in town for a few days and always like to try the local restaurants. The Reef had pretty good reviews with a lot of comments on the slow service. We were there during our spring break, not a super busy time, but busy. We walked in and were seated right away. It was terribly windy,... More

A small group of us ate here at the recommendation from the hotel where we were staying. Called and put our name in on the drive over and were seated right away at a nice table right alongside the windows overlooking the water. Service was very good. One of our party had gluten and egg allergies and they were helpful... More

Really good food and service. We were a party of four and everyone was very pleased. We didn't want to wait for an outdoor seat, but our interior seat still had a beautiful view of the water.

My husband and I took a drive to The Reef on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. We had made a reservation and got a great table inside overlooking the ocean. Our waiter was very professional and attentive to our needs. I ordered broiled scallops with red rice and brussel sprouts. The meal was delicious. My husband ordered the fish of the... More

We enjoyed our visit - went for lunch. Our server was very nice, the ocean view was wonderful. The food was good, though for lunch I felt it was overpriced. As an example: scallop dinner had 2 scallops plus sides: $18. Having said that, we enjoyed it. Not likely to return because of price.

Staff that takes time to explain to you what you will be eating! So many fine menu choice that it takes some time to decide. Ample... More

No restaurant should be permanently labeled based on one visit, but our visit here was no time good. Clean inside, great view, but the service was poor and the food average. Our entrees arrived 1 1/2 hours after our appetizers. Manager claimed it was just a busy Saturday night. I would suggest a mid-week visit.

Really good seafood! I enjoyed the lobster, shrimp and scallops dinner! This restaurant is situated on the water so you can see the ocean while you eat!

I went to the Reef in 2009 with family while on vacation. We enjoyed it so much that trip I took my fiance this trip. We had lunch there in February. I had the jambalaya and he had fish and shrimp. We both thought our food was delicious. The portion of jambalaya was way more than I could finish. After... More
